Lowcountry Cajun Festival

When: Sun., April 6, 12 p.m. 2014

No need to head down to Louisiana for some good ole Cajun food, it’s coming here to Charleston — just make your way to the James Island County Park for the Lowcountry Cajun Festival, where they will be serving up authentic Cajun and Creole fare, such as jambalaya, alligator, andouille sausage, étouffee, and crawfish, crawfish, crawfish. The purpose of this event is to “bring a culture to Charleston that is very popular all over the country,” says Matt Rosebrock from Charleston County Parks. The fest will also have funnel cakes, hot dogs, snow cones, barbecue, and seafood. Children’s activities and a full day of music from performers Shelly Waters, Felix y Los Gatos, and a double dose of Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble will keep the whole family entertained. But if you’re there for the fresh, steaming crawfish, the festival’s most popular food, then join in on the annual crawfish eating contest. Kids under 12 are free, and pets and outside coolers are not allowed.
